This book is WAY too basic. In an effort to provide a step by step approach to setting up and delivering seminars, the author patronizes even beginners in the field. There are also no tips or ideas on how to present the seminars after you've created one. Lots of info on marketing but pretty much common sense stuff that you could get over a cup of coffee with a friend or your mother!
After listening to the program, I felt that some, although not a majority, of the 33 steps required you to have another one of the author's products.
I contacted the author who replied very promptly with a lengthy explanation as to how I was mistaken.
If you choose to purchase this product it would be best to have the CD ROM containing the forms he repeatedly refers to while listening as well as his book.
For me, the issue is not whether an author recommends other resources. It is important that the product is complete in and of itself. The author thinks it does, I frankly feel that it does not.
He seems sincerely interested in helping people develop the proper mind set and action steps to deliver profitable seminars. It is recommended for a very remedial understanding of seminar production.
Basic is an understatement - an insult to the intelligence of those of us who may have information to share in seminar format. Some 'chapters' useless unless you have purchased his other books and CD Roms, which I would not waste the money on. I certainly wouldn't pay to sit through one of his seminars based on the 'usefulness' of this book.
I thought there just may be some good points to be gained - just disappointing
